MSI recently released a press notice alongside Killer NIC announcing an informal partnership between the companies that will see Killer NIC products coupled with the sale of MSI Big Bang Motherboards, but rumour has it the match may bring with it, a whole new level of integrated networking.
MSI has been relatively on the ball with its integration of unique technologies since its recent comeback to the enthusiast limelight. They were one of the first companies to launch a mainboard with the LucidLogix Hydra Engine, so it is definitely not outside the realm of possibility that following press release hints at a full on integration of the Killer NIC.
The full details of this development will be released at the very start of CES 2011 on January 4th, and Hardware Canucks will be in attendance to bring you the update the minute it happens.
